Czechia has just revealed its plans for the 2024 ESC in Malmö.

The national final, ESCZ, will use the nation to select its song for the upcoming contest once again. Submissions are now open and will remain open until November 6th, at 23:59CET. Currently, only a demo version is required and can be submitted in the following link.

A new rule was introduced to ESCZ this year. Now, singers participating in the national selection do not have to be of Czech citizenship; Singers from Slovakia, who permanently live and work in Czechia, may also enter the selection, giving a chance to even more artists than in previous years. For bands, that rule must apply to the lead singer but is not required for the other band members.

ESCZ will once again be broadcast live with live performances of the songs, as was done for the first time last year. More details about the selection, such as dates, number of participants in the final, and voting information, will be published in November.

This is the 5th time Czechia is using ESCZ as their national final. Since its beginning in 2018, ESCZ has provided some great results to Czechia, which has only seen the final once up until then. These include a 100% qualification rate of songs that won ESCZ, as well as 3 out of 4 of them finishing on the left side of the scoreboard in the final.

Last year, Vesna won ESCZ with their song ‘My Sister’s Crown’. They have led the nation to their second-best result in Eurovision, scoring 129 points and finishing in 10th place. The song included multiple languages and marks the first time since 2009 that the Czech language was heard in Eurovision.
